OASIS Alignment Services Standardises Entire Metrology Fleet with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence 6DoF Solutions

Leading service provider replaces traditional 3D laser trackers with next generation Leica T-Probe field solutions

2016년 5월 23일 월요일
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced today OASIS Alignment Services, LLC (Rochester, NH) has standardised its large metrology fleet on Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 laser trackers and Leica T-Probes. OASIS is a leading provider of 3D metrology, optical alignment, and mechanical services with eight regional service centres throughout North America. The company serves a broad spectrum of industries: pulp and paper, plastics and film, coating and laminating, nonwovens and textiles, power generation, aerospace, automotive and more. After one year of field testing two AT960s in every customer case scenario, the company experienced 100% uptime with the portable measurement technology. OASIS has now retooled its entire field enterprise, moving from traditional 3D laser trackers to the next-generation 6DoF technology of the AT960 paired with the Leica T-Probe. 

OASIS engineers and field service technicians are proficient users of precision optical tooling and 3D measurement technologies including laser trackers and laser scanners. Uptime of portable metrology equipment is vital to efficiently solving problems in the field and minimising costly customer downtime. OASIS no longer requires back-up spares in their metrology fleet based on the dependability of the AT960 trackers. The 6DOF technology has also provided increased accuracy for large-volume measurement tasks with much faster setup times. The wireless, handheld Leica T-Probe can access hard-to-reach points and gather data at a high point acquisition rate without multiple setups. A landmark advancement in the laser tracker field, PowerLock technology automatically locks onto any moving target without user intervention. OASIS operators can move freely and focus solely on measuring, even in crowded job sites, without the worry of reestablishing line-of-sight with the laser beam. The overall improved speed of measurement and ‘one person’ operation of the Leica T-Probe solution has positively impacted OASIS field completion rates.

“Reliable, failure-free equipment performance is critical to our customers' success, as well as our own success in providing solutions to our customers. It also provides peace of mind, as our field service technicians constantly face challenging jobs in formidable environments,” states Brian Hiltunen, OASIS President. “Our partnership with Hexagon has given us access to the latest laser tracker technology with high-precision measurement capabilities and superior dependability in the field. This transition has enabled us to maintain 100% uptime with 13% fewer trackers in our fleet. OASIS service personnel can sleep at night knowing their metrology tools will work the next morning, so they can accomplish each job with confidence.”

“Hexagon is very pleased to partner and support OASIS Alignment Services, a top performing service organisation in the industrial sector. Their seasoned experts have an in-depth knowledge of metrology applications and how alignment issues impact processes and overall machine efficiency. When you are in the field solving a customer crisis, time is of the essence and your problem-solving tools must be rock solid. OASIS is already seeing ROI and related savings as the 6DoF technology is reliable day in and day out,” concludes Joel Martin, Product Manager, Portable Laser Trackers, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.
